    Got new rear axle bushes fitted to my avant today.
    What a difference they made to the handling and the ride
    next to doing the control arms, has to go down as some of the best
    money I've spent on the car. €40 for the bushes
    €100 for the labour.
    By all accounts the one on the drivers side fell out

    Yeh we found the same when we did ours on the old car, felt like someone had just fitted completely new uprated suspension on the rear of the car!

    Still waiting to do mine. Going to try the heavy duty options as the polybushes arent available yet from what i can see.

    the handling on mine was all over the place even though i had fitted new shocks and springs.
    every time i hit a divet on the road or a ridge the back of the car wobbled like two old people shagging
    i recently upgraded my wheels from 15 to 17s and when changing i found that the whole axle was moving (thought it was time to change)
    there was no tell tale noises from mine just a lot of unnessecary movement.
    i fitted febi bushes that i got from german auto parts direct who were fairly competitive compared to my local autofactors
